I really don't know definitively so someone else may have a better 
answer but according to the man man-page -

/var/cache/man/ is an alternate database cache. 

/usr/share/man/ is a traditional database cache.

>From the man-page -
         A traditional global index database cache.

         An alternate or FHS compliant global index database cache.

My /var/cache/man/ directories are empty also.  
So I think your looking for /usr/share/man/
